WITH the hearing submissions by the Constitution Commission continuing in Fiji today, the Methodist Church in Fiji will set up a framework as part of their submissions to the commission.
The framework would also act as guidelines to assist members in their individual submissions.
This was confirmed by newly appointed church president Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu yesterday.
He said they would work closely with the 55 divisions and 300 circuits in the country to ensure their individual submissions would be based from the framework that would be drawn by the constitution committee within the church.
"We want to set the guidelines through this framework so that members understand what they should propose to be included in the new constitution," Mr Waqairatu said.
"This is important because we need to work together as members in the formulations of the new constitution," Mr Waqairatu added.
General secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said the framework would not be limited to what members wished to include in their individual submissions.
Mr Nawadra called members to be biblical in their approach and made recommendations to the best possible solution on issues affecting their lives.
"This is the opportunity where people can address their issues and I urge all members to stand up and make their submissions through this framework," Mr Nawadra said.
The Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma will make their submissions during the last week of September.
